    Thumbs up Jo Malone Black Vetyver Cafe: Underrated?

    I don't know what led me to resample this after it had been sitting untouched for about 2 years now, but I did. And boy, what a pleasant surprise! I know, I've read the reviews, and apparently it has less than average longevity, so cue the complaints from the powerhouse fanboys, but this stuff smells AMAZING. I'm very surprised, and it's now officially added to my wishlist. Are there any other fans out there?

    I love it - it's never overwhelming but has enough to it to feel complex. Go for it - pull the trigger!

    Thanks guys. Glad to hear there are others who appreciate this stuff too. JR, I've got a ton of new expenses recently and coming up, that are going to put a huge halt on any frag purchases. I'm now looking for extreme discounts and bargains unfortunately. I'll keep my eyes peeled though.

    I tried this today and I have fallen head over heels in love with it. What a *beautiful* scent.

    Alas, I agree with all of the negative comments regarding strength and longevity, but God, what a gorgeous smell while it lasts.

    Seriously considering a purchase!

    Underrated? No.

    I rate it average at best. Smells good for about 15 minutes, and then it's just whatever.

    Probably the only one from Jo Malone I'd consider purchasing.... I like it quite a bit. Even if it's fleeting it's perfect for morning application and by the time your coffee buzz has subsided so has the scent....

    I really wanted to like it, but I couldn't stand having it on and I tried numerous times. There is something about the coffee note that is jarring and slightly metallic to my nose.

    I tried it two weeks ago at Saks and sprayed it once on my son's neck. I had ran out of rom in my arms, so he was the guinea pig. I kept smelling his neck as our was amazing. Needless to say, I pulled the trigger and bought a bottle even after telling myself that I was done buying any frags for this year. Oh well, what can you do?
    Love someone today and it will come back to you ten folds
